Second Harvest Food Bank's Nutrition Services team is committed to helping low-income families improve their nutrition and health in partnership with our agency programs and community groups.

Hunger and Health: Making the Connection

Research shows that people experiencing food insecurity are more likely to suffer from diet-related chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. Factors contributing to this relationship include:

  • Less resources and access to healthy, affordable food

  • Cycles of limited food intake and overeating

  • High levels of stress due to financial and emotional pressures

  • Targeted marketing of products associated with obesity

  • Limited access to health care

​​

Second Harvest's Nutrition Services Team empowers individuals and families with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to establish healthier eating habits and maximize their resources for nutritious meals.
